      Hello
      SB-34/9/99h/AF1.2/fold to cbet 47


      1. Hand
      My flop cbet - again too small - first click betting, then thinking problem.
      But on Turn - how is correct play on that Turn - betting larger/call or sizing ok?
      Im behind on Turn most of time but i have implied odds to River hitting.

      Again that situation but vs MP - 50/13/8h
      Flop bet sizing - small.
      But on Turn - vs donk/lead - is ok to raise/call or shove?

      Hand1:

      Apart from bigger flop bet and bigger turn bet I think you played it fine. The idea is you get value, you don't have to bet small. He is going to call too many pair + draws to warrant a small bet imo.

      Hand 2:

      Bigger flop bet imo. Turn is a shove. He started with 80bb in his stack to begin with. Then he bets quite a few worse hands like AJ, AT, JT, KJ with redraw, QJ with redraw, etc. This means your top set just gets value. Against his made flushes you have some outs but since he called a 3bet and AJTs are out, he has very few flushes in his range. Instead he has quite a few pair + draw combos. His flushes will be something like K8s+, 98s, 78s, 76s, 97s, 86s. That will be around 10 flush combos against which you have outs (apart from obv KQs which might just get it in on the flop anyway).
